Hello! It’s Turtle here with another article! Today, I will be explaining why I think Sleekwhisker needs a super edition or novella.

I have many reasons why I think she needs her own book. Let’s get started!

1. She’s an interesting villain.

Sleekwhisker is a fascinating villain. She doesn’t seem to have any particular reason she’s evil, which is definitely different from almost every single villain in the series.

We know why cats such as Mapleshade, Tigerstar, and Scourge are evil- Mapleshade lost her kits, Tigerstar had an evil mentor, and Scourge was bullied as a kit.

But we don’t know what made Sleekwhisker decide to walk an evil path. If she had her own novella or super edition, we could discover more about her past- see if there’s anything there that might have influenced her dark deeds.

2. Her relationship with Needletail.

As an apprentice, Sleekwhisker and Needletail are good friends. But despite this former friendship, Sleekwhisker willingly helps Darktail attempt to kill Needletail.

What made Sleekwhisker turn against Needletail? Did Darktail promise her power if she helped him?

Or did something happen that made Sleekwhisker angry at Needletail, destroying their friendship forever?

I hope that if Sleekwhisker ever got her own book, it would explain in further detail exactly why she turned on Needletail- a cat she used to be friends with.

3. What happened to Sleekwhisker?

We really don’t know what happened to Sleekwhisker after her appearance in River Of Fire. Did she become a rouge? A loner? A kitty pet? (I can’t actually see fierce Sleekwhisker as a kitty pet, but I guess it’s a possibility!)

This would definitely be interesting to see in a book- what happened to Sleekwhisker?

4. Her disbelief in StarClan.

Sleekwhisker is heavily implied to not believe in StarClan. Since we’ve only had a couple of atheists in Warriors, I think that it would be neat to see Sleekwhisker’s thoughts on StarClan.

Did she always not think StarClan was real? Did she use to believe in them, but something shattered that belief?

I think it’d be cool to learn more about that.

5. She’s one of the only female villains in Warriors.

Warriors really does not have a lot of female villains. Since Sleekwhisker is one of the only female villains, I think that we should definitely have a chance to see her point of view.

And those are reasons I think Sleekwhisker needs a novella or a super edition!

Would you like to see Sleekwhisker have her own book?

See ya soon!

  • I’m not that interested in Sleekwhisker, and sometimes you just don’t have reasons for what you do. Like, for instance, I don’t think there’s this big reason for me joining BlogClan. I think I’d be content with “oh, by the way, i heard sleekwhisker’s dead” comment somewhere along the books. Nice article!

  • Great article!

    I’m don’t really like Sleekwhisker but I will be very interested in reading her book! Some things like becoming evil, turning against Needletail, and the disbelief in StarClan have to be explained.

    Hope you have a great day/night!

  • hmm, no on’es commented on this yet. i would have to readf the books to actually have any nolegdse (knwoledge, plz excuse the bad spelling im too liazy to move m yfingers properly). so i’ll come back when i’ve actually read the books with skeelskwhisker in them. here are some cookies wfor putting up with my bad spelling :))) 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪

  • Sleekwhisker needs her own book!
    Great article :]

  • Yes, she needs a super ed. She is so interesting and honestly? She might be my #1 fave villian. What i like about her is how mysterious she is. Why did she kill her former best friend? No one knows. Why did she support and aide her granpa’s usurper? No one knows. Why did she kidnap Yarrowleaf’s kits? NO. ONE. KNOWS!! She’s so cunning, smart , mysterious, and with no known motive. I would buy Sleekwhisker’s super ed. Even If it meant i had to give up a foot. You did an amazing job on this article!!!

  • Honestly, I really wanted a Needletail super edition or novella because her Pov would be a lot better for what’s going on with the Kin oppose to Violetshine. And we would get plenty of Sleekwhisker pov since she and Needletail were good friends until she 🤬drowned her.

    But, Sleekwhisker would be a good protagonist, I’ve always been curious about her relationship with Darktail and the Kin, her actual kin, ShadowClan, and everyone else.

  • I really enjoyed the article! You hit all of the right points and it was nice to see that you put a lot of thought into this! Very enjoyable and true. I’d never before put a ton of thought into her until this! Consider me inspired and on your side! 😀

  • I hate Sleekwhisker, but I can understand wanting a novella or super edition written about her. Question: Why does no one consider a manga?!

  • I agree with you, but I feel it would have to be a novella rather than a super edition. Sleekwhisker’s story just kind of seems like something you could wrap up/explain in about 10 chapters. (Sorry if that was offensive)
